I'm a former English teacher and children's book author who lives in a house in the woods with one husband and over 300 teddy bears. I like reading and writing humorous and multicultural stories. Currently, I'm working on several picture books, an easy reader series, and an early chapter book. My blog will focus on food-related themes in literature (in the form of reviews, recipes, musings, and interviews), with a sprinkling of writerly reflections and personal notes.
Please feel free to friend me -- I would love to meet you and hear your story!
Authors: Email me if you have written a food-related book, and would like me to review it, or possibly interview you.
Publishers: I accept review copies of children's and YA books with food-related themes, both fiction and nonfiction. Please email me for my snail mail address. Thanks!
